A seaside gateway with ocean views, from the luxe comfort of your hotel suites, sounds great! But cruising along the open water for a luxurious immersive experience is alluring, too! Now, high-end resorts are combining the bests of both worlds by offering charters on private in-house yachts with indulging amenities alongside luxury hotel stays.
7Pines Resort, Ibiza
Best known for its high-end parties, Ibiza also offers luxe relaxation. The 7Pines Resort in Ibiza is a prime place to unwind in the lap of nature with luxurious comfort. Standing atop a cliff looking over the Mediterranean Sea, the unique property provides its guests with sweeping sea views, alongside an opportunity to explore the vista in its Pershing Yachts. Thanks to the Fulvio de Simoni and the Ferretti Group, the Pershing 9X and Pershing 5X yachts of the resort feature futuristic elements that ensure incredibly smooth and aerodynamic sailing.
Pangkor Laut Resort, Malaysia
A privately owned island resort in Malaysia, the Pangkor Laut resort, offers its guests unparalleled sea views and direct access to the Straits of Malacca. It also has an in-house yacht to charter, named YTL Lady II, with custom itineraries. But the most famed one among them is The Straits to Luxury Experience, which is a 5-day 4-night charter, cruising the guests from the island property to Phuket. The 85-foot-long luxury vessel is also staffed with a chef and a private hostess.
The Ritz-Carlton, Turks & Caicos
Ritz-Carlton has long been a revered name for its signature brunches. The venue of the hotel chain at Turks & Caicos offers that same class but in an elevated form. You can enjoy a Sunday brunch at this Ritz-Carlton while cruising aboard Lady Grace, the sailing catamaran of the property. The 64-foot catamaran gets its name from the hotel’s location along the pristine Grace Bay, well-known for its warm, shallow, aquamarine waters. Lady Grace also offers bespoke tours, adventure activities, gourmet picnics, sunset cruises, and many more.
Marbella Club Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa, Spain
Located along the Costa del Sol in Spain, the Marbella Club Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa offers two sailing luxury yachts. Named Revolution and Lacruz, both the yachts are a hybrid of sport and luxury, featuring top-class amenities like high-end guest cabins, a large solarium, and a spacious outdoor shower in each one. To explore the Mediterranean, there are also watersports accessories like paddleboards, surfboards, etc on board. Both vessels are uniquely powered by the wind, providing you a serene sail against the picturesque backdrop of Gibraltar Rock and Sierra Blanca Mountains.
